Full-bodied and focused, this gorgeous wine opens with enticing scents of dark-skinned berry, pipe tobacco, truffle, new leather and a whiff of camphor. Savory and structured, the palate presents succulent red cherry, raspberry compote, licorice and baking spice accompanied by firm fine-grained tannins. It's well balanced, with fresh acidity. Drink 2021–2033.
